"I aim to bring PGGM and the media closer together. This is, without doubt, an interesting challenge at this time of economic crisis; a time when the question as to what is to happen to pensions is extremely topical. The experts at PGGM have an opinion about this, and it is this opinion that I communicate to the media. In addition, many people find pensions a complicated subject. Consequently, it is my task to ensure our message is communicated in a way that is comprehensible. This is something I greatly enjoy; as there is always an easy way of explaining difficult subjects."

      ​The Financial Stability Board (FSB) today announced the names of additional members of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) for phase 2 of the work of the Task Force. The Task Force, which was created in December, is developing voluntary, consistent climate-related financial disclosures for use by companies in providing information to lenders, insurers, investors and other stakeholders.
